Help bring back the art of true Classical Dressage. This is the form that promotes a horse with the proper rounded frame instead of the horses too frequently seen currently in competition of all types with the hollow backs & phony head sets.
Learn to develop the trained eye that will reveal who the true Classical Dressage riders are (very few are out there). You will see who has put the necessary foundation on their horses so they may continue to physically and mentally succeed in this as well as other disciplines.
You may be stunned to realize how the judges are rewarding the poor performances perhaps partially because not enough people ride correctly.
Learn what aids bring along the properly developed horse. The unnecessary aids frequently become weapons of torture, albeit unintentionally. Become aware of how many riders are physically & mentally harming their horses for a ribbon.
You can show in Classical Dressage as it was meant to be, or other disciplines for which Classical Dressage builds a strong foundation. Compel the judges to sit up and take notice.
This book encourages the riders who want their horses to be willing, capable partners to become more discriminating in their choice of trainers.
Thank you Amazon.com for providing this opportunity for horse lovers to learn the truth about Classical Dressage. It allows us to become more educated about the trainer and rider "wannabes" who use inappropriate riding and training methods, yet still win ribbons in the show ring.
